I have always cooked our Mon-Thur meals and we have had the traditional family dinners. But it is getting harder to do that with all the sports. Do you have any good meal ideas for those crazy nights when you cant actually all sit down together>?
I have two nights like that this week... the first crazy night Im making calzones. I figure they can put two on their plate and sit at the breakfast bar. But I could use some other ideas.

I too cook M-Th, but our schedules are getting hectic, especially in the spring with sports! On Mondays when I have class and aren't home, we plan meals that my 14 year old dd (who loves to cook) can make for the rest of the family so they can at least sit together and eat. Now that sports are in the pic (and jobs...the kids work now and aren't home), we just continue with making dinner and who is home gets to eat. It doesn't help that dh is sometimes late. We just do the best we can and make it work.
Taco meat works, everybody can make a soft taco when they get home. Chili or stews, just grab a bowl when you're home. Pasta dishes, like rigatoni, baked mostaccioli, etc. could work, just leave in the oven on warm. Most often, who's home eats and a left over container is made for the person who's coming in later, then they just re-heat and eat.
